Bryce Canyon, as many natural wonders, is an amazing creation. The land is fantastically sculpted into creamy orange and white dollops and splats of earth. The observation points lie above the sculpted bowl of yummy creations. There are many trails to explore, and backcountry camping is allowed as well.
We only had one day to explore and would have been better satisfied with two. We walked the Navajo Trail which proved to be popular and well worth it. We parked in a central location in order to walk the cluster of observation points feasible during our five or so hours there. We did not make it to the very end of the system, unfortunately.
Horseback riding in the canyon would have been perfect, but it is first come first serve making it difficult to plan and execute. We had to settle for a ride from Ruby?s Inn concessions which was O.K. and not in the park itself.
Plan to spend at least an entire day here as distances add up quickly.
